I am an experienced and highly motivated legal professional focusing on pragmatic and business oriented solutions for my clients.
Since 2018, I work as an independent legal counsel offering my services to various companies.
My previous experience includes practicing as attorney at the Brussels Bar (1995-2000) to serving as in-house counsel and eventually General Counsel (2000-2018).
As an attorney and general practitioner, I developed a broad experience in several areas of Belgian law (going from bankruptcy law over labor law to commercial law).
As in-house counsel, I worked for various multinationals active in different industries. This led me to hold various functions in the legal department. I started as solo in-house counsel (Resilux). I then became Lead Lawyer (Siemens) and moved up to General Counsel (Holcim) leading a team of 4 persons.
In addition to my legal skills, I am fluent in 3 languages (Dutch, French, English) and have a good working knowledge of German and Spanish. As a result, I am able to review and comment agreements in 5 different languages.
